Wilsonville, OR -( The carefree days of summer, and the resulting relaxing family vacations, are also a top time when many gun owners turn their attention to one of America’s greatest pastimes—plinking.

Plinking with a .22-caliber rifle or handgun—or other favored firearm—is very popular. Crimson Trace offers laser sights to make the experience more exciting—and safer.

First, Crimson Trace urges everyone to learn and follow gun safety principles when plinking. For great details on shooting firearms equipped with laser sights, visit and view the free training videos. Firearms equipped with laser sights help shooters improve sight alignment by placing a visual indicator (the red or green dot) on the target. Laser sights also offer immediate visual feedback and help shooters determine when, and where, a firearm moves when the trigger is tugged. Plinking can be both a fun event—and a learning experience.

Laser sights also teach important safety lessons by instantly showing where the firearm’s muzzle is pointed. The projected red or green dot helps everyone handling a firearm recognize any possible unsafe situation.

So how popular is plinking? One survey by the National Shooting Sports Foundation determined that 55% of Americans who have an interest in firearms and the shooting sports would like to go plinking. To make a future plinking event more exciting, free printable targets are available from the NSSF at:
